I defer to your own judgment.

If that research feels pointless during this crisis, that’s your body’s way of saying it was pointless all along.

Research agendas.

If you can’t concentrate on research because it looks pointless in light of contemporary events, it may be time to look differently at different things.

A research question is not a puzzle.

A puzzle is something that can be solved. The best questions, for better or worse, cannot.

Seriously, who cares?

I have never seen a group of scholars work so hard on basically unmotivated research.

Historical research.

“History shows…” almost everything, not one thing. So does “research.”

Researchers boast of unexpected results.

They suppose, on dubious sociological and psychological assumptions, that such results signal the absence of preconceptions or a willingness to accept truth.

You must re-learn what has been learned.

This process of passing down to posterity is re-search.


Thought must find out what life had already found to be true.

Why is it called “research”?

To search again is to search anew.
